My entry for DJ Tech Tools Midifighter contest! I’m using a Novation Launchpad with Traktor Pro 1.2.4. and juggling the cue points freestyle w/ quantization off and play off. For music, I’m using the tracks specified in these contest rules: http://www.djtechtools.com/2010/04/18/4-song-cue-point-juggle/

Just to explain the Launchpad mapping, it’s divided into four decks. Each deck takes up a quarter of the Launchpad (4 buttons by 4 buttons). Each deck also has 8 illuminated cue points. It’s not the best set up for cue point juggling but it works for other stuff.

I want to win a Midifighter because I love this concept of cue point juggling but the Launchpad keys are sticky and not really suited for the kind of crazy routines I imagine you could do with real arcade buttons. Thanks for the motivation to make a video and a chance to participate in this contest, DJ Tech Tools!
